לז"נ אבי מורי ר' צבי יהודה בן ר' משה זללה"ה 


Today in history is a special day for something that
did NOT happen.

It happened every single day of the year except
for one day in the year.


R. Tzvi Yehuda (Hashi) Friedman a"h  (1925-2005)
.נפטר בשבת קדש א' דר"ח טבת (לכסליו) ה'תשס"ו

 Born in Pressburg, Slovakia, Reb Hashi was a descendant of the Chasam Sofer, whose youngest daughter, Rechel, married Reb Tzvi Yehuda Friedman from Topolcany. Their youngest son, Yeshaya,  had a son, Moshe. Reb Moshe had three sons, Nissan, Hashi, and Pinchas. Among Hashi’s Rabbaiem were Rav D,Z, Peteney (Maharsha Ha; Aruch) Rav Akiva Sofer (the Daas Sofer), Rav Avraham Shmuel Binyomin Sofer (the Cheishev Sofer), Rav Yidel Donath, Rav S.D. Unger (Nitra Rav) Rav Refuel Bloom (Kashau Rav) Rav Moshe Stern (Debrecen Rav) and Rav Michoel Ber Weissmandel zt"l.In the early forties, he was constantly running away from the Nazis ym"s. Wherever he escaped to he managed to pick up and learn from a new Rebbie. In 1944, he was sent to Auschwitz and marched the Death March to Gleiwitz and was transported to Buchenwald. His entire family was murdered and he remained the sole survivor in the family. His life was filled with Torah& Chesed. He had a brilliant mind, was an original thinker, a Gevaldige Mechadesh, had a tremendous memory and a keen interest in all facets in Torah. He was a tremendous Talmid Chacham and Yadan Bchol Miktzo'os Hatorah. His Olam Hazeh and greatest pleasure in life was to learn and teach Torah. In his office at work, he had a Seforim Shrank fully stocked with Seforim so he could learn while he was free from work. He gave countless Shiurim Berabim. He was in the midst of giving a Gemoro Shiur, early in the morning when he was called out to move his car. On his way out he slipped on the ice and fell. He never regained consciousness. He was niftar the following day Shabbos Chanuka Parshas Mikeitz. He was Mekayam the Pasuk וזאת התורה אדם כי ימות באהל
